One of Purim's primary themes is Jewish unity. Haman tried to kill us all, we were all in danger together, so we celebrate together, too. Hence, on Purim day we place special emphasis on caring for the less fortunate.
There is a mitzvah to give money, "matanot la'evyonim," to at least two needy people during the daylight hours of Purim. In case you can't find any needy people, place two coins in a charity box earmarked for the poor.
As with the other mitzvot of Purim, even small children should fulfill this mitzvah.
